Legislative in France: elections of deputies from abroad, instructions

How many voters live outside France?

According to INSEE (National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies), of the 48.7 million registered voters, 1.4 million live outside France.

Until 2012, French people living abroad were only represented in the Senate, the upper house of Parliament. The election of deputies of French people residing outside France was created in 2008 on the occasion of a reform of the constitution. Their first election took place four years later.

French people living abroad will again be represented by eleven deputies (out of the 577 in the National Assembly) representing the eleven constituencies.foreign“.

In terms of the number of registered members, the most important of these constituencies is the 1st. It has 231,328 registrants in just two countries, Canada and the United States. The one with the fewest voters (89,012) is the 2nd which is spread over 33 countries in Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

Two constituencies concern the African continent, the 9th and the 10th.
The 9th includes the Maghreb and a large part of West Africa, with the exception of Benin, Ghana, Togo and Nigeria. These last four states are on the tenth constituency with the rest of Africa and the Middle East.

The 3rd constituency represents Northern Europe. The 4th, small in size but important in terms of the number of voters covers the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg).
The 5th is that of the Iberian Peninsula, Andorra and Monaco.
Switzerland and Liechtenstein represent the 6th constituency.
Central Europe and the Balkans are on the 7th.
The 8th is that of the European countries of the Mediterranean to which are added Israel, the Palestinian Territories and Turkey.
The 11th, finally, is a juggernaut grouping together 49 countries ranging from Eastern Europe to Oceania via a large part of Asia.

When to vote?

Voters living abroad will vote earlier than those in metropolitan France and overseas.
